Louisville's Fiber Internet Expansion Opposed By Koch Brothers Group

A group affiliated with the Koch brothers' powerful political network is leading an online campaign against Mayor Greg Fischer's $5.4 million proposal to expand Louisville’s ultra-fast internet access.

"Tell your council member to back #KyWired and stop the Kochs from meddling in Louisville's progress," Fischer said in a tweet hours after the Courier-Journal first reported the Washington, D.C.-based Taxpayers Protection Alliance had launched an online ad campaign.
